Topic: XLR vs RCA Output Level?
Just got my ADI-2 DAC today. I've been playing all day!
I'm using XLR outputs only and the auto reference level function.
From the unit, I see levels of -5/+1/+7/+13, with the unit currently set to -5.
The output level for XLR should be 6 dB higher, so +1/+7/+13/+19 of course.
I don't see this range presented to me so wondering what is up? I don't believe the unit auto-senses the connection so it looks like these are RCA values. Is there a setting somewhere that I missed that kicks all of this up by the 6 dB?
I've reviewed the manual so much I can recite it now. This is a mystery.
PS: What is the recommended setting if it has to be manually set? It's going right to my power amp.
